– WWE’s production crew made a big technical error before the SmackDown tapings this past Tuesday night in Buffalo at the HSBC Arena. While fans were waiting to get in the arena, a TV with no audio in the front lobby was on and it was showing the WWE crew rehearsing for the show. Fans saw Teddy Long & Kofi Kingston rehearsing their segment, the Divas rehearsing their match and Jack Swagger practicing for his segment. The WWE stars prepared for the show until the doors opened for fans to come into the arena.
– The Oklahoma Daily ran an article this week on the son of former World Champion Vader, Jesse White, who also played football at the University of Oklahoma. The article talked about how Jesse is training for a career in pro wrestling and included comments from Vader and Jim Ross. Jesse is training for wrestling two days a week now and is working for Midsouth Pro Wrestling in Oklahoma.
It was noted that Vader is still planning shows in Japan and North America through his company, Vader Time Promotions and will be holding a week-long wrestling camp later this year at the Paradise City Night Club in Oklahoma City. Vader says he will be trying to help Jesse live his dream and get a contract with WWE. Vader said: “The main thing to me is he approaches the opportunities correctly. He has to leave the arrogance behind. You have to stay humble, and bring God with you on the road. That’s something I didn’t do for a long time.”
